Philippine Airlines has confirmed that it will resume flights to India after a break of 16 years.
The carrier will introduce flights six-times a week to New Delhi using Airbus A330-300 planes. It is expected that 50 per cent of the services will depart from Manila and the remaining flights will operate via Bangkok.
Leaving Manila on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 21:10, the flight will arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport at 01:10.
It is thought that Philippine Airlines made the decision to reintroduce the flights to New Delhi following relaxed visa rules by the Indian government. The new service will start operating from March 27th.
